Aloha Bay Palm Tapers™ Cream -- 4 Candles

Distinguish your home naturally with the crystalline beauty of Palm Wax™. Pure Vegetable Palm Wax™. 4 Unscented Tapers. Burn Time: 9 hrs. 9" Tall. Eco Palm Wax from United Plantations and Golden Hope Plantations is no threat to rainforests or orangutans' ecosystems. We prefer palm based candles to genetically modified chemically distilled commercially grown soy wax. Palm oil uses one-tenth of the land as compared to soy production and is a sustainable tree crop that enhances biodiversity and carbon sequestering.  . In 1993 Aloha Bay began manufacturing and wholesaling hand dipped paraffin tapers painted with palm wax. These beautiful tapers are still popular in the gift industry. And in 1997 we developed the first 100% Palm Wax™ votives and richly scented jar candles. Over the years we have expanded our use of pure essential oils and have become a wholesale supplier to the natural food industry.  . Aloha Bay has continued to experiment with every type of vegetable wax (soy coconut rice bran carnauba candelilla bayberry jojoba and even castor oil). We have found that palm wax makes the best candles. Most vegetable waxes (e.g. soy wax) are too soft and oily to be used by themselves so they are often mixed together with large percentages of palm wax.

Perfect Taper
 March 31, 2014
"These candles burn cleanly with virtually NO dripping. Petroleum candles (i.e., paraffin) are made from the sludge left over from making diesel fuel (YUCK!) that is then bleached (great, more dangerous chemicals), often have lead in the center of the wick and they give me headaches and breathing issues. These candles are wonderful - no scent, no lead in the wick, no headaches or breathing issues. The colors are very muted - sort of like a heathered t-shirt. Have bought in every color and will always have on hand."

love these candles
 December 12, 2013
"These are great candles - burn time rating seems accurate, no odor and they are not petroleum wax. I have already ordered more. Also they are tapered at the bottom to fit your candle holders."

burns well, good price
 February 24, 2013
"I've bought these candles many times. They burn well and don't contain harmful toxins. They come in a variety of pretty colors and palm is a less expensive alternative to beeswax. Highly recommended."

good candles

"I buy these so that we don't breathe in the toxic fumes of paraffin candles. They are without fragrance and burn for many hours."
